"A multimedia show for all ages, earnestly tracing the evolution of Irish dance while toying with tradition, would be welcome. And this seems to be where 'Velocity' is heading, until it takes a misguided turn into something like an advertisement for its lead dancers — the two men, that is. ..There’s no doubting the pair’s excellence as technicians and charm...But this self-celebration rehashes one of the most tired parts of the original ‘Riverdance’ formula: male ego as engine.” Full Review
for a previous production "'Flamenco Sin Título' is an unfussy show, a meeting of dance and music and dance-as-music without the kind of narrative pretense that sometimes burdens flamenco productions. Experts in the slow build, the performers repeatedly take us from somber, reflective depths to jovial heights during the evening’s 10 sections...Ninety minutes is a lot for one dancer to carry, but Ms. Pericet’s personas manage just fine."

"If a show’s success can be measured by the number of happily shrieking children in the audience, then 'Untapped!' was a big hit...Is choreographic invention too much to expect from family entertainment?...On the other hand, if that’s what it takes to get youngsters enraptured with dance, so be it."

"A lush, if fragmented story arrives by way of exacting, exuberant choreography. A labyrinthine journey through shadowy corridors and meticulously decorated rooms, it exposes the sinister undertones of these childhood tales, while grappling with the more adult complexities of Carroll’s attraction to his prepubescent muse, Alice Liddell."
